STAR HAPPY HOUR DEAL: 241 cocktails between 5-7pm and after 10pm
Red’s True Barbeque is one of the newest BBQ joints in Shoredtich, on Great Eastern Street which opened its doors in summer 2015.
I visited Reds on a Tuesday night and it was heaving. Luckily there was space in the bar downstairs to have a happy hour cocktail before dinner! The bar is actually a really nice space with booths and cute fairy lights – if that was just a bar in Shoreditch, it would be heaving but unfortunately it is a little hidden within Reds. We had a Honey Berry Smash and a Strawberry and Elderflower Martini:
The food is as expected – lots of meat!! Burgers, steaks, ribs, chicken wings, burnt ends, pulled pork you name it!
I had a burger craving so opted for the special with cheese, bacon and chilli. My friend has the ribs and wings combo with sweet potato fries on the side. After a struggle, we both managed to clean our plates!
Good food, atmosphere and reasonably priced.
